WGS 105 Feminism and Self-Care: Perspectives and Practices

Dates: July 23, 2023 - July 28, 2023
Instructor: Martha Kenney

This class provides a personal, practical and intellectual engagement with an active practice of feminist self-care. We engage with feminist scholars and activists who have argued for the importance of embodiment and experiential learning in relation to self-care practices.

In this special iteration of the class at the Sierra Nevada Field Campus, we will consider how settler colonialism and segregation have made the U.S. wilderness the purview of white masculinity. In opposition to these histories, we will reclaim the outdoors as a possible space for self-care and community care for minorized people, using the natural environment of the Sierras as our feminist laboratory.
